Look no further, for we have the definitive listing of the best Amazon Fire Tablets to help you make your purchase decision. Can you believe that Fire Tablets have been around for almost a decade? When the original Kindle Fire was released way back in 2011, many thought Amazon was onto something with a low-cost, easy-to-use tablet experience. You know what? They were right! Today, there are no fewer than six Fire Tablet devices on offer from Amazon if you count the Kids Editions. Out of them all, we think the Fire HD 8 (2020) is the best overall value thanks to its size, improved processor, charging, storage capabilities, and ability to hit an affordable price point still. Here is a list of some of the best Fire Tablets out on the market right now.

The Fire HD 8 sits in between the Fire 7 and Fire HD 10 in more ways than one. It’s roughly in the middle of the two sizes, of course, but it’s also priced in the middle. Those two data points alone justify the Fire HD 8 as a great choice, but let’s explore a little more about what makes this device special.
For starters, it’s the lowest-priced Fire device you can get with a 1280×800 resolution display. The base model comes with 32GB of storage, but you can quickly and cheaply add to that with a microSD card and expand up to 1TB. With up to 12 hours of battery life, you’ll have plenty of juice to watch several movies or play games on the go. The device features Dolby Atmos in its dual stereo speakers and comes with a headphone jack to enjoy your music or videos. Unfortunately, you won’t get access to Google apps, but the Amazon app store has better offerings than it used to.
Our favorite feature here is the hands-free Alexa. You can call out to Alexa to ask questions or give commands. So not only is this device great as an entertainment portal, but it can also serve as a smart home hub. For example, you can use the touchscreen or Alexa to control your lights and thermostat, show you who’s at the front door through your Ring camera, or video chat with friends and family through its 720p HD video camera. You also get two 2MP cameras — one on the front and one on the back.RECOMMENDED VIDEOS FOR YOU…CLOSEhttps://imasdk.googleapis.com/js/core/bridge3.513.0_en.html#goog_15247362320 seconds of 9 minutes, 14 secondsVolume 0% PLAY SOUND
Even though the Fire HD 10 has a bigger screen with a higher PPI (pixels per inch) resolution, we think the Fire HD 8 has all you need for a fantastic entertainment experience. The current iteration has a USB-C port for more efficient and faster charging, just like the HD 10. The addition of Game Mode for distraction-free gaming will please both the kids and the adults in the family.
Fire HD 10 Tablet (2021)
Best Amazon Fire Tablet for sharingTODAY’S BEST DEALS
REASONS TO BUY
+Full HD display+Biggest Fire Tablet screen+Dolby Atmos and dual stereo speakers+More storage than competitors+12 hours of battery
REASONS TO AVOID
If you want the most immersive video and gaming experience on a Fire Tablet, you want a Fire HD 10. We know it’s the most expensive Fire, but you know what? It’s still darn affordable! Try finding another Android tablet or iPad of this size at anywhere close to this price.
The Fire HD 10 (2021) is the largest Amazon tablet with a full HD 1080p display, coming in at 1920×1200 resolution. It offers up to 12 hours of battery life, including video watching, web browsing, and music listening, and it comes with Dolby Atmos, dual stereo speakers, and a headphone jack. It features a VGA front-facing camera with 720p HD video recording and has the same 2MP cameras as on the HD 8.
As its size would suggest, the Fire HD 10 comes with more storage (up to 64GB) that is expandable up to 512GB, and it has the best processor of the Fire Tablet line. You can use that storage and processing speed to watch hours of Prime Video, Netflix, or Showtime, and playing mobile games on that full HD screen is a delight.
While the 2019 edition of the Fire HD 10 was a bit heavy for some at just over a pound (17.8 ounces), the latest version is a bit lighter at 16.4 ounces. It’s a fantastic device for reading books, newspapers, magazines, or even websites — particularly if you need or want to enable a larger font because there’s just so much more screen space to view your content
